In February, God will collide with Tupac Shakur during in a new course being taught at the Denver Lift School of Theology.
Rapper/activist/Harvard Hip-Hop Fellow, Tef Poe, will co-instruct a course called “God and Tupac” with Dr. Jennifer Leath.
Tef is a globetrotting activist, a thinker, a student, a teacher and one of the most versatile emcees to grip a mic.
His appearance at Denver Lift School of Theology is part of a promotional push for Black Julian 2: Never Satisfied.
The album features diverse production styles and potent lyrics and subject matter.
One of the greatest intellectuals of our time, Cornel West can be heard throughout the record, adding to the urgency of Tef’s call for change in America and around the world.
On “70” our hero from the 314 addresses rappers, Donald Trump and neo nazis tying it all together with an infectious hook.
On “No Remorse” Teflon addresses how once friendly relationships can quickly become volatile. When he name checks other greats like Nas (“Thank God for Nas”) and Rihanna (“Rihanna”) it’s always deeper than it appears on the surface. Obviously, Tef is a “Soulja” that understands where he comes from but it’s worth noting that he is constantly building a better tomorrow for himself and his loyal legion of supporters.
Whether you’re a lifelong supporter or a new fan, you’ll be doing yourself a favor by checking out Black Julian 2: Never Satisfied- available wherever great music is sold!
You can catch Tef Poe at Harvard University until the month of May as a Nasir Jones Fellow with the Hip Hop Archive.
